Green Juice of the Year

For all you fresh juice lovers, try this combo. It blew my taste buds outta the water. It's basically my typical green juice with bell pepper added. I didn't realize what an amazing twist bell pepper adds.

Here is approximately what I put through my juicer:

  • 1 head celery
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 apples
  • 1 lime (peeled)
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 2" fresh ginger root
  • 2" fresh turmeric root
When you're finished juicing, add a dash of cayenne pepper to each glass. A fantastic addition would be cilantro (blended in or juiced).

Add a beet to make it a lovely valentine drink for your sweetie.

The fresh turmeric root is a great addition because of its anti-inflammatory properties. If you are looking for turmeric root in the grocery store, you might confuse it with ginger root. It looks the same but is orange on the inside.

Cheers to health and deliciousness!

Hi Julia! Thanks for the wonderful juice recipe. I made it today, although mine came out redder from a red bell pepper. The dash of cayenne pepper is a great touch. Delicious! :)
